Why you should go for waxing over shaving

Everybody’s been debating over these two methods of hair removal for quite some time. However, there are a lot of reasons that have proven why waxing has a wide range of advantages over shaving. Read on to find out the best five (5) reasons why you should go for waxing.

1. Removes dead cells.

Your skin regenerates about every 28 days. As new skin cells are made, old, dead skin cells rise to the outer layers of your skin. The accumulation of dead skin cells causes your skin to look dry, dull and flaky. Through waxing, all those dead cells that are present on the surface of your skin were also removed when the wax is pulled off from the skin along with the hair, thus reveal the fresh skin underneath.

2. It is safer.
Using razor when shaving can lead to a painful and itchy razor burn and may also cause unwanted cut. No one wants to put on a bikini or a tank top with red, bumpy razor burn on their bikini line or underarms. It is safer to wax unwanted hair because the pain from having your hair pulled out for some time will vanish anyway.

3. Time Saving
Waxing saves you a ton of time each day because when you wax a particular part of your body, the hair gets ruthlessly uprooted. It takes quite some time for hair to regrow. Shaving, on the other hand, is not a permanent solution to hair removal because hair grows back extremely quickly.

4. Smoother Skin
One of the worst feelings in the world is the spikey stubble feels brought by the hair growing after shaving. When you shave your hair, you are cutting it off, leaving a blunt tip that also causes your skin to look dark. On the other hand, when you wax, the hair that grows back has a fine tip that is soft and not pokey.

5. Reduces Hair Regrowth
If you do not skip between your waxing appointments, the hair grows in less and less. This is caused by hair papilla damage caused by waxing. The hair papilla is responsible for supplying nutrients to the hair in order for it to grow. Without the papilla, the hair can’t grow.
